Triumph recently took the market by storm with the launch of the Speed 400 in the Indian market. Now, two new 250cc motorcycles have appeared on the Contact Us page of the official Triumph website. The drop-down menu shows Roadster 250 and Scrambler 250. It’s possible that the manufacturer is working on more affordable motorcycles, and these names may only be temporary. Triumph has not officially announced any new motorcycles as of now.
Triumph will likely use the same design language for the new 250 Twins as the current Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X. However, that design will be toned down as the motorcycle will be the new most affordable bike in the range.
Both motorcycles will use the same engine, expected to displace 250 cc. It will feature a single cylinder, DOHC and liquid cooling. A ride-by-wire service might also be available. The duty transmission will be a 6-speed unit with a slipper clutch.

Suspension duties will be handled by upside-down forks up front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking duties will be performed by the front and rear brake discs. Dual-channel ABS will also be offered. The Scrambler will have a switchable ABS on the rear wheel.
Triumph has priced the Speed 400 very aggressively in the Indian market. The brand racked up 10,000 reservations in the first ten days after the launch of the Speed 400 and Scrambler 400 X motorcycles. The motorcycles will be manufactured by Bajaj Auto in Chakan. There is a new facility there, which Bajaj calls Chakan 2. As of now, the facility has an installed capacity of 25,000 units. However, the company’s allocated capacity for Triumph bikes is 5,000 per month. The factory will not only produce motorcycles for India, but also export assembly kits for Thailand and Brazil.
